2) I elected to avoid the hassle this time and not pull a filthy child leash, so BCA doesn't have anything to switch to.
Just had an infinite loop with this gem: 0 beeosity, mainstat 999999999 max, .25 item power, weapon damage, +effective -10 ml +muscle experience +0.5 mp regen min +0.5 mp regen max, .5 hp, +outfit swashbuckling getup -equip hilarious comedy prop 0.0 random monster modifiers. Had the outfit, plus whatever I had saved as "bumcheekascend" outfit, but the maximizer (or BCA?) kept insisting I didn't have whatever, or it wasn't an item. Naturally without specifying which item that was, because, why make anyone's life easy? Seems to me specifying which item is in question should make things easier on everyone. Or something.
